Join us for a weekend of birding in Douglas County from Thursday, May 24 to Sunday, May 27.
Douglas County runs from the Umpqua river to the Pacific Ocean, and includes snowy peaks, forests, wetlands, and dunes. It is an under-appreciated part of our birdy state with excellent diversity.
Itinerary and Registration
The headquarters for the Douglas County Blitz is near Roseburg. We will meet each morning or preceding evening to assign areas, coordinate efforts, and exchange information.
On the mornings of May 24-27, we will break into groups and count birds in and near assigned Oregon2020 Hotspot Squares. Teams can spend the rest of the day chasing rarities or exploring interesting looking habitats.
This will be a free event. However, participants will be responsible for their own accommodations and meals. We recommend booking accommodations at nearby lodging and camping as early as possible.
